What do you think should be said in a hubbers profile page?
What makes a perfect profile page?
I think a profile page should not include too much information. Readers really just want to know some basic facts about a writer. I feel like anything beyond a few paragraphs is probably too much. If someone claims to be an expert in a certain area, they should list the reasons why. Other than that, a few basic facts is all that is needed.
A hubber's profile should list the 5 W's of basic writing. Who, What, When, Where, Why. Another 'W' might include How. At HubPages, your profile intro should really be about one paragraph with these details. Make it short and sweet.
A brief explanation about the author and topics of interest i believe will make a perfect profile page.
Personally, I believe a profile is as much about how you write as what you write in it. A "perfect" profile reflects the writer's voice much like a professional resume reflects the job seeker's work persona. Content matters, of course, but it is as much how you say it as it is what you say.
A look into one's personality, I say. Location tells a lot about what people may be interested in, which at times, I find surprising.
Any other elements that make a person who they are - job, interests of even why they write. I though a lot about what I wanted to tell my readers, but limit it to my creative specifics and locale.
My statement is what I think I aim at doing when I write - drawing attention to things that raise eyebrows for their being egregious. There is, of course, more on my page, but I am not willing to put it out of a fear that it would look self promotional here. But this is my take on my writing and intent:
Often enough I find that I want to make an outrageous statement to stir things up a bit. They say not to stir certain things up, so pay close attention. I have never been a big fan of paint as an artist, finding grey-scales to be enough to portray just what needs to be told. Black and White - we humans love the facts to be given to us this way. But facts and truths are two different things. FACT - some of the things I say are outrageous, off-putting and egregious 1, and egregious 2. (e·gre·gious /iˈgrējəs/Adjective 1 Outstandingly bad; shocking. 2 Remarkably good.) TRUTH, I like to be honest about that fact, especially when what comes out of my mouth, and yours, "Often enough," is number two. Black and white? No, I just painted everything I say in perspective for you, which in truth, IS REMARKABLY GOOD!

I have noticed in the past few days while Hub Hopping and scanning my feed that there are a plethora of new hubs and hubbers joining the site and publishing low quality or poorly translated/spun hubs. When I click on the profile after flagging the hubs, I notice that there is no information about...

Would the hubpages staff ever consider building tools that allow hubbers to personalize their homepage / profile page? Are there some design options you could build to allow for our profile page to reflect a little more about what we hub about or who we are? For example, what about the freedom to...

I know that you can choose to display your idle hubs on your profile page, but I don't, because I don't want Google to see them at all and get confused by all those "do not follow." What this means is that my idle hubs are not available for anyone to see, and I have to actively...

This is not so much for discussion, rather, I need an immediate help from any experienced Hubbers. I am a new member and have just posted my first Hub. I am ready to share with friends, but there is no Follow button on my profile page. Instead I see Edit Profile where Follow button should be. I...

I wanted to know whether the profile page also has adsense revenue share. Or Hubbers are allowed to get full revenue from Profile pages?
